The Pros Know It’s Bajío

See Why Pros Choose Bajío

What’s one more fish a day worth to you? If a rod, reel, line, lure or boat accessory could help you catch one more fish every day, what would you be willing to pay?

There’s a reason fishing guides catch more fish, and a part of it is based on time on the water, but an even bigger component is that they stack the odds in their favor. Find a fishing guide that doesn’t use 100% knots, sharpened hooks, braided line, 8-ball bearing reels and a rod that’s undergone more scientific research than a strand of DNA, and I’ll show you a first-year underachiever with weekends off.

From side-imaging sonar to spot locking trolling motors, fishing guides increase the odds of all aspects of finding, catching and landing fish in their favor by utilizing the best (and newest) tools for the job. All those elements combine to increase their chances of coming back to the dock with more notches in their rods than the average angler.

And one of their biggest advantages is the polarized sunglasses they wear, because you can’t catch fish you don’t see. That’s not an opinion, that’s science, and math, and some kind of trivia question for Mr. Obvious. Just ask 23-year-old full-time fly fishing guide, Cullan Ashby.

“Bajío feels like a breath of fresh air. Regardless of the product being just what I need on the water - the brand itself seems to be so much more than just sunglasses. They continue to make an effort to do good and are doing their best to protect these special places by providing a product that not only performs but also makes less of an impact on the planet,” said Ashby.

Born in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Cullan is a 23-year-old full-time fly fishing guide holding 4 IGFA line class records. He guides back-to-back seasons alternating between the Ponoi River in Russia and the Seychelles.

The science behind Bajio is our LAPIS technology which eliminates 95% of harsh blue light—the blue light that not only damages your eyes, but also creates haze, so when you remove it, you get a radically clear view of the world around you. When you spend your life on the water, you notice things like that.

Our lenses also increase contrast which lets you see movement and color differentiations. Ever have a school of fish right in front of you, but you can’t see them? That’s because they’re stationary and blended into the bottom background. 

But if one of those statues flares a fin or turns to give you a flash of color or shadow, you’ll suddenly see the school like a dime has been dropped on a crew of chameleons. Count them up and make the cast.
